2017 St. George Official Marathon Charities





Assistance League of Southern Utah

Assistance League of Southern Utah is dedicated to enriching the lives of Washington County children in need. Our signature program is Operation School Bell® which provides new clothing to financially disadvantaged children. They can then attend school with pride and confidence in themselves.

Our first year as a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, we clothed 240 children; this past year that number grew to 500. We are looking to expand our program to include more children, and to serve additional needs they have.

Assistance League works with local school district administrators to ensure we reach those children with the greatest need. With your help we can do more, and help these children stay in school so they can build a future for themselves.

The girls follow a fun curriculum that teaches about self-esteem, healthy living, fighting back against society's focus on external beauty and rejecting peer pressure. The 10 week program gives girls the tools to speak out against negativity, and the most important trait, confidence, to succeed in a changing world. With confidence, the girls learn to take risks, find their voice, and radiate power.

Due to the high volume of Charity Applicants and the limited amount of "Official Marathon Charity" entries The St George Marathon staff has developed a more flexible charitable program to meet the unique needs of each charity chosen by the Event as an Official Marathon Charity. Since 2010 we have been offering a 2-tiered Charity structure to accommodate more charity applicants.
